WABCO, a leading global supplier of technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, announced that it will continue to supply its most advanced, high-performance safety technologies to KAMAZ-master off-road truck racing team and defending champion of the Dakar Rally. KAMAZ-master has won the Dakar Rally 12 times, including most recently in 2014.

WABCO has supplied KAMAZ-master since 1997 with pioneering safety technologies and has significantly contributed to the team’s continued success ever since. In 2015, WABCO equips KAMAZ-master team’s heavy-duty trucks with technologies such as high-performance air compressors, wheel-end solutions, coupling controls and WABCO Tristop cylinders.

Dakar 2015, which covers 9,000 kilometers (5,592 miles) of the most unforgiving terrain through Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, launched on Jan. 4 and concludes on Jan. 17 in Argentina’s capital of Buenos Aires. In total, 63 racing trucks representing 12 different commercial vehicle brands will cross the starting line. KAMAZ-master will send four trucks to defend its title.

The Dakar puts to the ultimate test racing teams and vehicles alike. This year, drivers will cross the Andes Mountains twice, face the world’s largest salt lake called the “Salar de Uyuni” and venture in the Atacama Desert, commonly known as the driest place on earth.
